T113 I know you don't like your own painting, but not bad at all!
Something to think about when painting: At what distance are you going to be viewing the model(s)?
If you're thinking about viewing them from a distance of say three to twelve inches then that's Golden Daemon
level of painting.
If however you're only going to be looking at the distance of a table top, say 24 to 36 inches away; then that doesn't require such a detailed level of painting. This is sometimes called 'table top painting' or 'painting for the table top', there maybe other terms for this; but I that's what I've heard it called. Basically, does it look good on the table top?TIP
It looks like you used a shade, okay I still want to call them "washes"; but hey, I still have inks! Anyway, if you do use a shade/wash then you'll want to do your base coat and highlights first, before
you do the shade. Okay, I can't tell exactly what you did on your model, but that's just one little thing you can do to help with blending colours.
On your 'soul fire' you might consider using the blue shade (the wash was Asurmen Blue, but I don't know what it's called now?) Add a third level of highlight with an almost white blue on the tips; which gives it three levels of colour, then use the blue shade to 'blend' the colours together.
There are a one-hundred and one ways to paint, and my method is just one of many. So I'm sure others here will have other suggestions.
